THE balance of power could shift from the districts to the three soccer leagues if a normalisation committee proposal to revise the composition of the FUFA general assembly is endorsed.

The normalisation committee’s statutes team led by Kavuma Kabenge and John Matovu wants representatives of super, first and second divisions to constitute the bulk of the assembly.

Sources have revealed that the committee is proposing a reduced assembly of 60 delegates where the three leagues are each represented by 15 delegates.

Other interest groups like referees, coaches, women and players will provide the balance. The current assembly where district delegates are the majority has 160 delegates.

“Leagues are the basis of our football,” said the source while explaining the statute committee’s preference for the three soccer divisions.

A large assembly with a big fraction of delegates representing constituencies lacking serious football is to some the reason why FUFA has lately had a leadership crisis.

Kabenge and Matovu did not give details but said they are through with the proposals. These will starting tomorrow be distributed to stakeholders for more input before a final submission to FIFA.

FIFA’s road map to normalcy in Ugandan football requires the committee to have submitted the statutes to Zurich by June 15 — a requirement that Kabenge says will be fulfiled.

The world soccer body is by July 15 expected to have approved the final draft of the new FUFA statutes.

Ratification of the statutes by an extraordinary general assembly is supposed to be done by August 31. The FIFA road map set delegates’ polls in October and the national polls in December.

Normalisation committee secretary Patrick Isiagi said wide consultations have been made in the exercise to draft statutes.

The Twaha Kakaire-Muhammad Seggonga constitutional review report, Stephen Kavuma report and the current constitution are among the areas consulted.
